New World Order and the coronavirus | Is the coronavirus a bioweapon?

The world is being rocked by COVID-19 and the Bible predicted much of what we are seeing.
The entire world has been rocked by the COVID-19 or coronavirus global pandemic. With hundreds of thousands dead and millions more infected, this hyper-infectious virus has uprooted the economy, overwhelmed the medical care system and forced global quarantine. Governments have used unprecedented spending and authority to try and ensure the peace and safety of their citizens, yet the death tolls continue to climb and paranoia grips many. Will counties institute martial law? Is it time to start tracking who receives their mandatory vaccinations and who does not? The world is hoping and waiting for a solution – any solution – to return life to normalcy and remove this threat. For Christians it is a time to remember that we already have the solution and that everything taking place is just a small preview of life in the Great Tribulation.

The globalist Council On Foreign Relations is encouraging the world to see itself at war.

In the Beginning And End Rapture Series, we detailed that in the timing of Revelation, Jesus Christ received the scroll that unlocks that events of the end times at His return to Heaven from Earth 2,000 years ago:
“And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?  And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.  And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.” – Revelation 5:1-7
Jesus Christ took this book of prophecy from the hand of God the Father after His resurrection and return to Heaven.  Before His victory over death and the grave: “no man was found worthy to open and to read the book” but upon being “slain” and rising from the grave, Jesus Christ completed the mission of His First Coming to Earth – winning salvation for all those who believed in Him and “prevailing” over Satan.  It is then that The Lord takes the book and starts to open the seals.  This took place 2,000 years ago.
The judgments of the seals run until the start of the Day Of The Lord – also known as “The Great Tribulation” or “the 7-year Tribulation.”  But what is significant for this article is that Jesus warned that they were just previews of the greater judgments on Earth to come:
“And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.” – Mark 13:7
“But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.” – Luke 21:9
Jesus emphasized that the many wars and rumors of war were not the end times but precursors of the Day of The Lord.  And certainly, in the era of this global pandemic, leaders across the world are beating the drums of war – declaring the fight to stop the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus nothing short of World War III:
To be at war is to be in active or vigorous conflict.  According to world leaders, we are in active or vigorous conflict with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). President Trump has declared the virus “the invisible enemy” and likened the response to World War II, saying he considers himself a “wartime president.”  In the last Democratic presidential debate, former vice president Joe Biden proclaimed, “We’re at war with a virus.” Overseas, French President Emmanuel Macron says “we are at war” with COVID-19.  British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, also referring to COVID-19 as a “deadly enemy,” noted that they must act like a “wartime government … to win the fight.”  (source).


Coronavirus and New World Order control and tracking | Black rider seals of Revelation 6
Basic food items have become scarce and basic cleaning items are now luxury items.
“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” – Revelation 6:5-6
In a moment, food items that millions of people take for granted – eggs, milk, bread and toilet paper, for example – have become scarce invaluable commodities.  Spray disinfectant is a near impossible item to find on any shelf in the United States. Meats are gone.  Grocery store shelves are empty.  The third seal of Revelation 6, above, involves a spirit of economic upheaval.
An 18th century commentary on this passage from Jonathan Gill summed up the severity of the phrase “a measure of wheat for a penny”:
“…this phrase expresses such a scarcity, as that a man’s daily wages would be but just enough to buy himself bread, without any thing to eat with it; and when he would have nothing left for clothes, and other things, nor anything for his wife and children..” (source).

Lines for food banks stretch miles as thousands of families hit by the massive wave of layoffs are suddenly unable to afford food.
The judgment of the third seal is a financial one, with families having to work a full day just to earn enough for bread for one person.  Due to the shelter-in-place orders given from governments worldwide to curb the spread of COVID-19, the global economy has been ravaged.  Hundreds of thousands of business have been forced to shutter and go into financial ruin since they are forbidden from operating. Restaurants, retailers and small business owners have been devastated from the government-mandated closings.  Millions have lost their jobs and seen their savings evaporate.  The stock markets have plummeted. Lines for food banks – devoted to sharing free food with those in need – span for miles at some locations.  Basic food items have truly taken on the cost and investment of luxury goods.

Lines that stretch blocks just to enter a grocery store have become the norm in New York City.
Interestingly, wine sales have seen a significant spike since the pandemic started as many people are stockpiling alcohol to “endure” the time being home for the most part with their families and loved ones.  And the oil industry is set to recover from the initial financial damage of the pandemic as they are managing production to raise prices.  As the Bible stated, the oil and wine are not being harmed by COVID-19.


Is Coronavirus a sign of the end times? | Is the rapture soon?
Brazil has resorted to using mass graves to cope with the massive numbers of deaths that overwhelmed funeral homes.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.  And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” – Revelation 6:7-8 
The fourth seal of Revelation 6 unleashes the spirit of “Death and Hell.” And this spirit is authorized to take a fourth part of the earth and punish it with death by violence, famine and “the beasts of the earth.” One of the key theories in the origin of the coronavirus was that it came from bats. Some have attributed to the “wet market” where live and newly-killed animals are sold, including bats.  Others have pointed to the recently released State Department documents from 2018 that expressed concern about the Wuhan bio-lab that was researching viruses in bats (a lab whose funding was supported by NIH head and coronvirus czar Anthony Fauci).
Did Coronavirus originate in a Wuhan lab with bats? | How did coronavirus starts
China’s wet markets have now reopened selling bats, rats, dogs and other Biblically-forbidden animals, to eat.
When God gave the the law to the Israelites, He specifically banned the eating of bats:
“And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth…And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray… And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.” – Leviticus 11:1-2, 13; 19
And now the “beasts of the earth” are even bringing plagues upon humanity. 


Coronavirus cure and vaccine research | What does the Bible say about coronavirus
Many of the super-wealthy have been forced to retreat to luxury bunkers.
What has differentiated COVID-19 from any other pandemic of recent memory was that it has affected people of all socioeconomic strata all over the globe. For the first time in decades, Hollywood movies have been forced to stop production.  Famous celebrities, accustomed to jet-setting around the globe, dining at their favorite establishments and bouncing between one of their many mansions, are now restricted to their homes lest they catch the plague.  And for many of society’s elite, the answer has been to enter a “luxury bunker” – purchasing a deluxe underground shelter to protect them from the pandemic.
In the end times, this will also take place. The Bible prophesies that when the judgments of the Day Of The Lord truly begin (at the opening of the 6th seal), the wealthy will indeed run for cover into their underground shelters:
“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;  And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.  And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:  For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” – Revelation 6:12-17


Coronavirus New World Order |COVID-19 mandatory vaccines
In the wake of the Coronavirus, military checkpoints have become the norm in nations.

With the unprecedented nature of the pandemic has also come a wave of unprecedented exercises of authority by governments over the world. Just a brief survey of some of the measures being implemented worldwide to track, control and stop the spread of COVID-19 reveals some stunning intrusions into personal liberty and individual rights:
  • The Australia government enacted power to install a surveillance device in the homes of those citizens who have been ordered to self-isolate to ensure they remain home or even compel them to wear a monitoring device. (source).
  • Argentina’s Ministry of Health has built a mandatory app for those entering the country to keep installed for 14 days, which requires users to give access to location data.  It’s not clear if the government is actively tracking people with that location data, but the province of Santa Fe is allegedly forcing those who have violated quarantine to download an app that specifically tracks their whereabouts.
  • Brazil’s government is tracing the daily activity of millions of citizens, by tapping into their cell phone data. Andre Ferraz, the CEO of the firm providing the technology for tracking stated: “The big difference that we have in relation to other location technologies, whether by GPS or cell phone, is precision. We were able to have visibility of certain behaviors that could not be captured by other technologies. For example: if a person leaves home, we can detect it almost in real time, in a few seconds.” (source).
    Coronavirus New World Order data tracking | Mark of the Beast Revelation 13
    Many countries are rolling out mobile phone apps to track the virus – which will soon become the norm in much of the world.
  • In Israel the government is using data from telecom providers to track the locations of millions of citizens in an attempt to find people diagnosed with the coronavirus and alert those with whom the infected person might have interacted. Those breaking quarantine are threatened with up to six months of imprisonment. (source).
  • Hong Kong is issuing electronic tracker wristbands to monitor the movement of those ordered into quarantine. (source).
  • Below is an ad for the new app TraceTogether – that assures the user none of their private data is being collected:
  • In the United States, South Dakota governor Kristi Noem recommended all residents of her stated install the app Care19 on their phones which allows tracking of their GPS location. “This is an app that will help the Department of Health work with you to remember all the places that you’ve been, the people you may have been near, and will help us more efficiently investigate your case,” she said.(source).
  • Facebook is also using a popup COVID-19 Survey to help track user symptoms. (source).

Coronavirus Mandatory vaccine | Mark of the Beast Revlation 13
The media is already preparing society for the necessary steps to return to society.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute Of Health has been propelled to the position of being one of the most powerful people in the world as his nearly daily updates on media outlets provide “the official word” on the fate of the world in dealing with the pandemic. It is extremely likely he will be dubbed TIME Magazine’s “Person Of The Year”, receive a Nobel Prize and numerous other accolades. For the past decade he has served on the Leadership Board of a vaccine initiative sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He has already walked back projections he made a week earlier. And he has made the statement that life will not return to normal until a vaccine arrives. Given the historic devastation COVID-19, all likelihood points to laws being put into place to require vaccination for a return to “normal participation” in society.
How easy would it now be to point to someone who does not want to take a vaccine as a “threat to society”? Or someone who is “endangering their children” because they have not signed up yet. Using mass transit, boarding airplanes and having a job in the workplace may all soon be predicated upon being “medically cleared.” And at the same time the COVId-19 coronavirus was starting to spread, researchers at MIT developed a system to inject an invisible dye into the skin that can store the vaccination record of a person and allow for quick verification via a mobile phone app:
“Along with the vaccine, a child would be injected with a bit of dye that is invisible to the naked eye but easily seen with a special cell-phone filter, combined with an app that shines near-infrared light onto the skin. The dye would be expected to last up to five years, according to tests on pig and rat skin and human skin in a dish. The system—which has not yet been tested in children—would provide quick and easy access to vaccination history, avoid the risk of clerical errors, and add little to the cost or risk of the procedure, according to the study, published Wednesday in Science Translational Medicine.” (source).
Coronavirus is it the end of the world? | Illuminati Coronavirus
Many media outlets are openly calling for a New World Order.
With this system in place, there can be instant digital confirmation that a person is in compliance and permitted to participate in normal societal activity. The book of Revelation, although written 2,000 years ago, when such technology was not even fathomable, nonetheless predicted a system just like this being implemented by the Antichrist during the Great Tribulation:
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” – Revelation 13:16-17.
Absent the Mark of The Beast, which is inserted into the right hand or forehead, the Bible prophesied a person would have no ability to buy or sell any item. And that this system would be implemented globally. Only in the past decade has such technology even made such a system possible and serves as striking evidence of the divine inspiration of Scripture and a chilling warning of what is to come.


Why does God allow Coronavirus? | Where is God in the pandemic?
The pandemic quarantine is a great opportunity to get back into God’s Word.
“To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?… Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.  Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:  Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:  I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.” – Isaiah 46:5; 8-13
With the world in such upheaval, now is not the time for a Christian to be afraid. Now is a time to be all the more emboldened to share and preach what the Bible prophesied millennia ago. All of this was written. The world is indeed going to experience great tribulation and judgment before the final “Great Tribulation.” But all these things are just the final events before the greatest event to come – the return of Jesus Christ to Earth. If you are a Christian, pray for faith, strength and healing for this world. Pray for more people to wake up and realize that in times of true crisis, their money, occupation and vast possessions cannot save them. For all our technology, knowledge and pride humanity was humbled in a moment by a virus. But God, the Creator of all, is still in charge.
The Lord proclaimed that no other false god, demon or fallen angel is like Him. How? Because none of them can proclaim the course of human events from the beginning. God uses the numerous prophecies of the Bible to demonstrate His power. And if you are not a believer, understand that the what is taking place today was all predicted and literally being ripped from the headlines of Scripture. Do no waste time. Life is so precious and so incredibly short. Pray to God for the free forgiveness of your sin so your soul is saved, and you have eternity in Heaven. Jesus Christ said: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28). This world is being given a small preview of the judgment that is to come – do not it fall on deaf ears.

I am so proud to stand alongside so many in the House and the Senate in protecting our liberties.

On behalf of the Independence State of Pennsylvania, we are calling on United States Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice to investigate the heavy-handed dictates of the Wolf Administration during the COVID-19 emergency.

“The Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis,” or in the words of Ronald Reagan: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
We Hear You: House Actions Help Guide State Toward Safe Reopening


With Pennsylvania employers, workers and families continuing to struggle in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the House was back in session this week continuing our work to reopen businesses safely so people can return to work and support their families.

From the moment the governor abruptly announced his unconstitutional statewide business closure order in mid-March, the House has been fighting to bring openness, transparency and logic to the process.

We have taken action on bills to reopen construction (which is slated to open today), golf courses (also slated to reopen today, along with privately owned campgrounds, marinas and guided fishing trips), as well as automobile dealers, smaller retail stores, real estate, garden centers, pet groomers and more.

In fact, while we were debating legislation in the House to safely reopen the real estate industry, the Wolf administration issued new guidance to allow certain transactions to proceed.

Thank you for sharing your questions and concerns with us; we hear you, and it is making a difference.

Other bills advanced by the House this week:

  •   To help our communities and first responders, House Bill 2413 would invest up to $40 million in grants for fire and emergency medical services companies.
  •   To help save taxpayer dollars, House Bill 2418 would require a comprehensive review of all Commonwealth debt to identify opportunities to take advantage of refinancing at lower interest rates.
  •   House Bill 2392 would require the Independent Fiscal Office to include critical risk factors in its assessment of the Commonwealth’s fiscal condition to help lawmakers better plan and budget within our means.
  •   To address regulations, House Bill 2415 would require the Office of the Governor to notify legislative leaders in writing by electronic means when a specific statute or regulation is suspended, modified or waived under the authority of the emergency order.
  •   To ensure intergovernmental cooperation throughout the disaster and recovery period, House Bill 2419 would establish the COVID-19 inter-branch Cost and Recovery Task Force.

None of this could have been achieved without the people making their voices heard.

While this is great news, there are more sectors of PA’s economy that are ready to open safely and follow CDC guidelines. It is a matter of survival for more businesses to reopen now!

Elective Surgeries Restored


Last week, I joined with more than 50 of my House Republican colleagues in sending a letter calling on PA Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine to help save our struggling hospitals and other health care providers by lifting the COVID-19 prohibition on elective surgeries.

As a direct result, the Department of Health has released new guidance that will allow hospitals and surgical centers to resume non-emergent surgeries and procedures, as long as the facilities remain prepared should they need to respond to COVID-19 cases.

Virus Outbreak Hasidic Tension
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed his sympathy for the loss of a rabbi in Brooklyn, but condemned the large funeral gathering as it put more people at risk of exposure.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday a funeral for an ultra-Orthodox rabbi that drew thousands of mourners in Brooklyn “was absolutely unacceptable,” and he warned that police will start issuing summonses or arrest violators at similar gatherings.

“It was a large gathering, again, tragically thousands of people. The amount of danger created by that kind of gathering is inestimable,” de Blasio said at a press conference. “People will die because of it, which goes against everyone’s values.”

Jewish organizations blasted the mayor’s comments.

Police didn’t issue any citations at Tuesday night’s funeral for Rabbi Chaim Mertz, but that will change, a police spokesperson said. De Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said they are done warning people who violate social distancing guidelines. The rabbi died of Covid-19 at age 73, NBC New York reported.

Shea said “probably several thousand people” gathered on one block for the funeral, which was broken up by the NYPD.

“That event last night never should have happened, it better not happen again,” Shea warned. “You are putting my cops’ lives at risk and it’s unacceptable.”

On Tuesday night, de Blasio sent police to Brooklyn where a massive crowd of people could be seen in the streets attending the funeral. The mayor sent a series of tweets scolding the gatherers, saying he went to the scene himself to ensure the crowd dispersed.

The Democrat mayor of New York City has issued a dire warning eerily reminiscent of that which happened during the German Nazi regime under Adolph Hitler — round up Jewish people and arrest them. Stopping only short of announcing he’d toss them in concentration camps and gas them, he did say that this is all about “stopping this disease and saving lives.”
You can’t make this stuff up. This comes on the heels of this anti-Constitutional tyrant who also threatened to shut down churches — PERMANENTLY — if they continued to hold worship services during the city’s lockdown.
De Blasio obviously has a serious problem with the Constitution of the United States and civil liberties afforded people. The very first sentence in the very first amendment is abundantly clear:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…
That de Blasio would make such a thoughtless statement and receive such little backlash speaks volumes of the direction the citizens of this country have taken. We’ve lost our will to fight — and when we’ve lost our will to fight, we lose our freedoms.

After endorsing the pro-gay Jen Hatmaker earlier this year, Max Lucado’s new-found role of propping up heretics and false teachers seems to have hit overdrive. In January, Lucado joined Hatmaker on her podcast and gave her glowing accolades telling her that she made listening to her “easy and delightful, and yet profound at the same time.”
Lucado, who I described as “fairly orthodox though not without problems,” clearly compromised the gospel with his endorsement of Hatmaker, lending credibility to her as a minister of the gospel when clearly her “gospel” is false.
Now, it’s safe to say that Lucado himself should be avoided at all costs since he does not have the discernment, wisdom, and heart to separate himself from false teachers who are harming the Kingdom of God.
In a recent show, Lucado endorsed Steven Furtick — a false teacher who twists the Scriptures, preaches Word of Faith heresy, and just recently embraced the heresy of modalism which denies the orthodox view of the Trinity — and promoted Furtick as though he is a man of God with godly things to say about Christians getting through the coronavirus.

Steven Furtick is perhaps one of the most obvious examples of a hipster false teacher. Not only is he the protege of modalist heretic T.D. Jakes, Furtick runs his business, oh, I mean "church" like an entertainment center, ticking ears while sound doctrine is slain in the streets fulfilling the word of God which says "the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine". But Furtick makes money and he is popular which is probably the main reason why Max Lucado is promoting him. It certainly doesn't have anything to do with a love of the truth.

At the behest of the World Health Organization (WHO) executive director Michael Ryan, Oregon is slated to remove children from homes and place them in “substitute care” if parents are deemed “unable to support them.”
Ryan, who was criticized for stating that governments need to go door-to-door looking for people infected with coronavirus and if found, “Now we need to go and look in families to find those people who may be sick, and remove them and isolate them.”
Oregon seems to be complying with these orders:
State and local “child welfare” departments have a history of mishandling child welfare cases and over-indulge in their power to forcibly separate children from their parents — and this will be no different. According to a document released and authorized by Lacey Andresen, the Deputy Director of Oregon’s Child Welfare & Practice Program, effective April 22, “a child will enter substitute care because their caregiver is infected with COVID-19.”
What constitutes “unable to support them” isn’t exactly spelled out, but if history repeats itself, this is nothing more than a power grab to remove children from their parents and place them in foster care systems overseen by the state — and once children are handed over to the state, it is an uphill battle to get them back.


Tensions escalate in California: Cities file lawsuits against Gov. Newsom


Before the pandemic, Gavin Newson and state Democrats were already crushing the people of California
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
In today’s Re-Open California #EndThe Lockdown protest in Sacramento, embattled Californians will circle the state Capitol in cars, trucks and on motorcycles. They might have assembled on the spacious grounds of the Capitol, as they did in January to protest Assembly Bill 5, which threatens Californians’ right to earn a living. By April, the California Highway Patrol was refusing to issue permits for events at any state properties, including the Capitol. As it happens, free speech and assembly are not the only constitutional rights Gov. Newsom is out to crush.
As it emerged Thursday, the governor intends to close all state beaches and parks. Gov. Newsom does not want thousands of Californians flocking to the beach, as they did the past weekend during a heat wave. So the freedom of movement also disturbs the San Francisco Democrat.
On Wednesday, Newsom told reporters “we believe we are weeks, not months, away from making meaningful modifications to that indicator,” a reference to his shelter-in-place order. Gov. Newsom did not explain what “modifications” he had in mind or when, exactly, he would make them. If Californians believe Newsom would keep the lockdown in place until, say, November 3 or beyond, it would be hard to blame them.
Solitary surfers have been arrested and Newsom’s mayor allies have set up a Stasi-style system that rewards informers. With the number of unemployed Californians approaching three million, Newsom signs a $1 billion deal with Chinese company BYD for 200 million masks a month, in a state of 40 million people.
While he boosts employment in China, Gov. Newsom maintains a lockdown that will doubtless shutter small businesses for good and deprive more Californians of their ability to earn a living. That is what state Democrats were doing before the coronavirus left Wuhan, China, and landed in California.
Last year, Gov. Newsom signed California Assembly Bill 5, by San Diego Democrat Lorena Gonzalez, a virtual declaration of war against independent contractors of all kinds. AB-5 is the  first measure openly to oppose the professions Californians choose for themselves, the first measure to deny Californians their rights of free association, and the first measure to limit workers’ ability to earn a living.
The measure limits freelance writers, photographers and videographers to 35 submissions per publication, per year. AB-5 has also taken work from independent contractors in many fields including health care. The repressive measure is being challenged in the courts but legislators have declined to suspend it. With a pandemic damaging the state, 151 of California’s leading economists and political scientists, including  Nobel laureate Vernon Smith of Chapman University, John Taylor of Stanford, Lee Ohanian of UCLA, and David Teece of UC Berkeley, sent an open letter to Gov. Newsom. 
With employers not hiring, the 151 argued, gig workers could shoulder the many tasks needed to flatten out the effects of the temporary emergency. And as the signatories saw it, “AB-5 is doing substantial, and avoidable, harm to the very people who now have the fewest resources and the worst alternatives available to them,” so the measure should be suspended.
Such a sensible move would incur no costs and help countless workers get back on their feet. Even so, at this writing, Gov. Newsom has declined to suspend or “modify” the measure. So California workers could be forgiven for believing that, even as the coronavirus declines, Newsom will keep the lockdown in place. As Californians have noticed, the Democrats’ dapper Il Duce likes to dish but not take.
Katy Grimes of the California Globe cites Newsom’s “refusal to stand in front of media every day and answer the hard questions the way the President does.” Newsom conducts his briefings remotely and journalists must call in with questions. As Grimes explains, “not one reporter has asked him why healthy people are being quarantined. Not one reporter has asked the governor why he is depriving citizens of constitutional and civil rights. Not one has questioned the governor about the misuse of police to enforce depriving people of their civil rights.”
Chief among them is the right to protest, but now the governor has put the Capitol and all state property off limits. The Democrat Duce seems unaware of California’s long tradition of protest. As they take it to the streets, the state Capitol, and the beaches, the people of California will be watching carefully how the staatspolizei respond. The governor, for his part, has already made it clear what he’s about.
Back in March, when he announced the lockdown, Newsom thanked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and gushed, “we are so blessed to have her leadership in California.” So behind the scenes Nancy is calling the shots, even as her one-time nephew by marriage is touted as a presidential contender in 2024.
In the meantime, Gavin Newsom previews what life would be like under the administration of just about any Democrat. As President Trump says, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

On Easter Sunday, the Vatican released a letter Pope Francis wrote to Catholic organizations in South America. Francis wrote that the coronavirus pandemic “might be a good time to consider a universal basic wage” that would enable the poor to enjoy “the benefits of globalism.” 
Such a measure, Francis wrote, “would ensure and concretely achieve the ideal, at once so human and so Christian, of no worker without rights.” 
Toward the end of his letter, Francis hoped the pandemic would generate “a humanist and ecological conversion that puts an end to the idolatry of money, and places human life and dignity at the center.” 
Nowhere in his letter did Francis mention Jesus Christ. 
The letter conclusively proves that Francis is transforming the Catholic Church into another non-governmental organization. In the process, he is destroying the church's identity and credibility. 
Francis’ activism reflects and culminates the Vatican’s embrace of humanist utopianism, which Front Page Magazine briefly addressed last year in “They Died For 'Dialogue’?” That article traced the Holy See’s policy of appeasing Islam and China to the radical globalism adopted at the Second Vatican Council, which met from 1962 to 1965. 
A pastoral document written on politics and economics during the council stated that “there must be made available to all men everything necessary for leading a life truly human, such as food, clothing, and shelter. ... Hence, the social order and its development must invariably work to the benefit of the human person.” 
In 1967, Pope Paul VI called for international agencies to create “a full-bodied humanism,” he wrote, by managing the world's economic and political development: 
Such international collaboration among the nations of the world certainly calls for institutions that will promote, coordinate and direct it, until a new juridical order is firmly established and fully ratified. We give willing and wholehearted support to those public organizations that have already joined in promoting the development of nations, and We ardently hope that they will enjoy ever growing authority.
In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI took that concept to its logical conclusion ​by advocating that the United Nations direct both international and domestic​ economic policies:
In the face of the unrelenting growth of global interdependence, there is a strongly felt need...
for a reform of the United Nations...and, likewise, of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth.... 
To manage the global bring about integral and timely disarmament, food security and peace; to guarantee the protection of the environment and to regulate migration: for all this, there is urgent need of a true world political authority...
This authority, Benedict wrote, must "seek to establish the common good" and "have the authority to ensure compliance with its decisions from all parties, and also with the coordinated measures adopted in various international forums." 
The ultimate purpose, Benedict wrote, would be to design a "directed" global economy that would "open up the unprecedented possibility of large-scale redistribution of wealth on a world-wide scale" - - including "a worldwide redistribution of energy resources, so that countries lacking those resources can have access to them." 
In promoting such an authority, Benedict subtly redefined the Catholic Church's primary role from proclaiming the Gospel to ensuring economic benefits for all -- or, at least, redefining the Gospel in materialist terms. Benedict even presumed that global economic management through a “true world political authority" can achieve spiritual harmony. 
When animated by charity, commitment to the common good ... has a place within the testimony of divine charity that paves the way for eternity through temporal action. Man's earthly activity, when inspired and sustained by charity, contributes to the building of the universal city of God, which is the goal of the history of the human family.
Like his predecessors, Francis believes globalism is pivotal. In an August interview with the Italian newspaper La Stampa​​, Francis criticized nationalist movements threatening the European Union: 
Europe cannot and must not break apart. It is a historical, cultural, as well as geographical, unity. Never forget that ‘the whole is greater than the parts.’ Globalization, unity, should not be conceived as a sphere but as a polyhedron. Each people retains its identity in unity with others.
Francis' bishops promote the new prime directive. “They Died For ‘Dialogue’?” mentions the praise Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, the chancellor of the Pontifical Council for Sciences and Social Sciences, gave China in February 2018:
Right now, those who are implementing the Church's social doctrine the best are the Chinese.
They search for the common good and subordinate everything to the general welfare.
Sorondo particularly praised China's implementation of "Laudato Si," Francis' environmental encyclical, for "defending the dignity of the person" and "assuming a moral leadership that others have left," a criticism of the United States' withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on carbon-dioxide emissions. 
Sorondo issued his praise despite the fact that China ranks among the world's worst air polluters, performs between 10 million and 23 million abortions a year -- many of them forced by the government -- and persecutes Christians who worship outside of state-approved churches. 
In June 2018, Cardinal Pietro Parolin became the first official from the Holy See to attend the Bilderberg Meetings, where international figures from business, finance, government, communications and academia gathered to discuss such topics as political populism, free trade and economic inequality. Eighteen months earlier, Parolin had addressed the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. 
Parolin -- the Vatican's second-most powerful figure as its secretary of state -- received an invitation from the Bilderberg organizers, who insisted upon his presence.
Nearly three months later, Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich vividly illustrated the papacy's priorities. Immediately after Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano alleged that Francis protected and promoted sexual predators among the bishops, Cupich performed his best imitation of Marie Antoinette. 
"The Pope has a bigger agenda," Cupich told Chicago's WMAQ-TV. "He's got to get on with other things: talking about the environment, protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the Church. We're not going to go down a rabbit hole on this." 
Cupich repeated that theme the next day at Mundelein Seminary in suburban Chicago: "We have a bigger agenda than to be distracted by all of this," Cupich told the seminarians, one of whom spoke anonymously to the Chicago Sun-Times about the archbishop's address. The Sun-Times published the story after receiving confirmation from other sources, including several seminarians.
If Catholic prelates are willing to disregard the victimization of the innocent, nobody should expect them to uphold the church’s historic opposition to abortion and contraception.
In February, one month before California‘s primary, San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy issued voting guidelines for Catholics in his diocese. But McElroy did more than reiterate support for Francis’ positions on environmentalism and immigration. He essentially stated that those positions held greater significance than the church’s stance against abortion and contraception.
While conceding that abortion was “intrinsically evil,” McElroy criticized the idea that “candidates who seek laws opposing intrinsically evil actions automatically have a​ primary claim to political support in the Catholic conscience.”
“The problem with this approach is that while the criterion of intrinsic evil identifies specific human acts that can never be justified, this criterion is not a measure of the relative gravity of the evil in particular human or political actions,” McElroy wrote. “Telling a lie is intrinsically evil, while escalating a nuclear arms race is not. But it is wrongheaded to propose that telling a lie to constituents should count more in the calculus of faithful voting than a candidate’s plans to initiate a destabilizing nuclear weapons program."
Similarly, contraception is intrinsically evil in Catholic moral theology, while actions which destroy the environment generally are not. But it is a far greater moral evil for our​ country to abandon the Paris Climate Accord than to provide contraceptives in federal health centers.​ (emphasis added)
Perhaps no better example of the Vatican’s embrace of humanist globalism exists than the presence of economist Jeffrey Sachs as a papal advisor. Sachs, who drafted the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, supports abortion as an integral part of population control. Nevertheless, he participates frequently in Vatican conferences on sustainability.
So why would Francis have Sachs as an advisor? Consider these comments the economist made to the National Catholic Register ​​after one such conference in February:
Asked whether by the Church’s teaching on human dignity he meant respect for life from conception to natural death, Sachs replied: ‘I mean everybody’s economic needs should be met, that people should have the dignity of work, that the poor should be helped, that this is about the core ideas of human well-being.’
Asked if by helping the poor he meant wealth creation, he said: ‘Jesus said, “He who feeds the least among me, feeds me.” He was talking about helping the poor. When Aristotle talks about politics or the common good, he’s talking about a society in which people afforded dignity.’
‘We know why our current system leads to massive inequalities, leaving billions of people behind,’ he said, ‘and so this is about public policy, about individual ethics, social organization. It’s about our attitudes towards others.’
When questioned by Pontius Pilate, Jesus said that his kingdom was not of this world. Yet as Sachs demonstrates, Catholicism is trying to gain the whole world by being like the world. By doing so, the church is losing its own soul.


The religious as opposed to nationalistic aspects of the Armenian Genocide
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Last Friday, April 24, marked the “Great Crime,” that is, the genocide of Christians—primarily Armenians Assyrians and Greeks—that took place under the Islamic Ottoman Empire, throughout World War I.  Then, in an attempt to wipe out as many Christians as possible, the Turks massacred approximately 1.5 million Armenians, 300,000 Assyrians, and 750,000 Greeks.
Most objective American historians who have studied the question unequivocally agree that it was a deliberate, calculated genocide:
More than one million Armenians perished as the result of execution, starvation, disease, the harsh environment, and physical abuse.  A people who lived in eastern Turkey for nearly 3,000 years [more than double the amount of time the invading Islamic Turks had occupied Anatolia, now known as “Turkey”] lost its homeland and was profoundly decimated in the first large-scale genocide of the twentieth century.  At the beginning of 1915 there were some two million Armenians within Turkey; today there are fewer than 60,000….  Despite the vast amount of evidence that points to the historical reality of the Armenian Genocide, eyewitness accounts, official archives, photographic evidence, the reports of diplomats, and the testimony of survivors, denial of the Armenian Genocide by successive regimes in Turkey has gone on from 1915 to the present.
Similarly, in 1920, U.S. Senate Resolution 359 heard testimony that included evidence of “[m]utilation, violation, torture, and death [which] have left their haunting memories in a hundred beautiful Armenian valleys, and the traveler in that region is seldom free from the evidence of this most colossal crime of all the ages.” 
In her memoir, Ravished ArmeniaAurora Mardiganian described being raped and thrown into a harem (consistent with Islam’s rules of war).  Unlike thousands of other Armenian girls who were discarded after being defiled, she managed to escape. In the city of Malatia, she saw 16 Christian girls crucified: “Each girl had been nailed alive upon her cross,” she wrote, “spikes through her feet and hands, only their hair blown by the wind, covered their bodies.” Such scenes were portrayed in the 1919 documentary film Auction of Souls, some of which is based on Mardiganian’s memoirs.
Whereas the genocide is largely acknowledged in the West, one of its primary if not fundamental causes is habitually overlooked: religion.  The genocide is usually articulated through a singularly secular paradigm, one that factors only things that are intelligible from a secular, Western point of view—such as identity and gender politics, nationalism, and territorial disputes. Such an approach does little more than project modern Western perspectives onto vastly different civilizations and eras.
War, of course, is another factor that clouds the true face of the genocide.  Because these atrocities mostly occurred during World War I, so the argument goes, they are ultimately a reflection of just that—war, in all its chaos and destruction, and nothing more.  But as Winston Churchill, who described the massacres as an “administrative holocaust,” correctly observed, “The opportunity [WWI] presented itself for clearing Turkish soil of a Christian race.”  Even Adolf Hitler, ominously presaging his own plans, had pointed out that “Turkey is taking advantage of the war in order to thoroughly liquidate its internal foes, i.e., the indigenous Christians, without being thereby disturbed by foreign intervention.”
It’s worth noting that little has changed; in the context of war in Iraq, Syria, and Libya, the first to be targeted for genocide have been Christians and other minorities.
But even the most cited factor of the Armenian Genocide, “ethnic identity conflict,” while legitimate, must be understood in light of the fact that, historically, religion accounted more for a person’s identity than language or heritage.   This is daily demonstrated throughout the Islamic world today, where Muslim governments and Muslim mobs persecute Christian minorities who share the same race, ethnicity, language, and culture; minorities who are indistinguishable from the majority—except, of course, for being non-Muslims, or “infidels.”
As one Armenian studies professor asks, “If it [the Armenian Genocide] was a feud between Turks and Armenians, what explains the genocide carried out by Turkey against the Christian Assyrians at the same time?” The same can be said about the Greeks. From a Turkish perspective, the primary thing Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks had in common was that they were all Christian “infidels.”
According to a 2017 book, Year of the Sword: The Assyrian Christian Genocide, the “policy of ethnic cleansing was stirred up by pan-Islamism and religious fanaticism.  Christians were considered infidels (kafir).  The call to Jihad, decreed on 29 November 1914 and instigated and orchestrated for political ends, was part of the plan” to “combine and sweep over the lands of Christians and to exterminate them.”   As with Armenians and Greeks, eyewitness accounts tell of the sadistic eye-gouging of Assyrians and the gang rape of their children on church altars. According to key documents, all this was part of “an Ottoman plan to exterminate Turkey’s Christians.”
Today, from Indonesia in the east to Morocco in the west, from Central Asia in the north, to sub-Sahara Africa—that is, throughout the entire Islamic world—Muslims are, to varying degrees, persecuting, killing, raping, enslaving, torturing and dislocating Christians; where formal Islamic groups such as the Islamic State (ISIS), Al Shabaab, Boko Haram, etc., hold sway, Christians and other “infidels” are literally experiencing a genocide.  (See Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians — or my monthly “Muslim Persecution of Christians” report — for a comprehensive and ongoing account of the “great crime” of our times.)
To understand how the historic genocide of Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks is representative of the modern day plight of Christians under Islam, one need only read the following words written in 1918 by President Theodore Roosevelt; however, read “Armenian” as “Christian” and “Turkish” as  “Islamic,” as supplied in brackets:
the Armenian [Christian] massacre was the greatest crime of the war, and the failure to act against Turkey [the Islamic world] is to condone it… the failure to deal radically with the Turkish [Islamic] horror means that all talk of guaranteeing the future peace of the world is mischievous nonsense.
Similarly, if we “fail to deal radically” with the “horror” currently being visited upon millions of Christians around the Islamic world, we “condone it” and had better cease talking “mischievous nonsense” of a utopian world of peace and tolerance.
Put differently, silence is always the ally of those who would liquidate the “other.”  In 1915, Adolf Hitler rationalized his genocidal plans, which he implemented some three decades later, when he rhetorically asked: “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”
And who among today’s Western politicians speaks—let alone does anything—about the ongoing annihilation of Christians by Muslims?

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Christian News Network) — Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has filed an amicus brief in support of a local church and against his own governor, stating that Andy Beshear’s blanket halt on in-person church services, without taking into account the size of the gathering or the distancing between attendees, is “unconstitutional.”
“These restrictions apply no matter how large the gathering might be, no matter where the people might get together, and regardless of whether they practice safe social-distancing and good hygiene. This is unconstitutional. But it does not have to be this way,” Cameron wrote on Wednesday in support of an appeal in the case of Maryville Baptist Church v. Beshear.
“By simply implementing the same social-distancing measures for religious gatherings as for liquor stores, retail chains, and offices, the governor could achieve the same state interest in a less-restrictive manner,” he opined.
Cameron gave examples of considerations or criteria that Beshear could put forward instead of a general ban.
“[T]he order could permit small gatherings, or gatherings based upon the size of the space in which people meet,” he said. “Could a congregation of ten individuals, for example, meet for worship in a large auditorium?”
On March 19, Gov. Beshear issued an order prohibiting “mass gatherings,” which “includ[ed] any event or convening that brings together groups of individuals, including, but not limited to, community, civic, public, leisure, faith-based, or sporting events; parades; concerts; festivals; conventions; fundraisers; and similar activities.” It did not state any size allowances.
Earlier this month, during his daily COVID-19 update, Beshear warned residents not to attend in-person Easter gatherings, including church services, stating that their license plate numbers would be recorded and submitted to local health departments.
“Any individual that’s going to participate in a mass gathering of any type that we know about this weekend, we are going to record license plates and provide it to local health departments,” he said. “Local health departments are going to come to your door with an order for you to be quarantined for 14 days.”
“Understand that this is the only way that your decision doesn’t kill somebody else, that your decision doesn’t spread the coronavirus in your county and your community,” Beshear continued. “Your decision to go to a mass gathering doesn’t negate the sacrifice of every other house of worship — 99.99 percent that are choosing to do the right thing.”
On Easter, two Kentucky state troopers did indeed record the license plate or VIN numbers of the approximately 50 indoor worshipers at Marysville Baptist Church in Hillview, and members received letters advising that they were consequently required to quarantine.
“This vehicle’s presence at this location indicates that its occupants are present at a mass gathering prohibited by orders of the governor and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services,” the notices read in part.
“Employees of the local health department will be contacting those associated with this vehicle with self-quarantine documents, including an agreement requiring this vehicle’s occupants and anyone in the household to self-quarantine for 14 days.”
It also noted, “Please be advised that KRS 39A.990 makes it a Class A misdemeanor to violate an emergency order.”
The church and its pastor, Jack Roberts, soon sued Beshear, stating that an injunction was necessary as they “remain targets of governor Beshear’s enforcement threats.”
The legal challenge read in part:
“Plaintiffs seek a TRO restraining enforcement against Plaintiffs of the various COVID-19 orders issued by Governor Beshear and other Commonwealth officials purporting to prohibit Plaintiffs, on pain of criminal sanctions and mandatory, household-wide quarantines … regardless of whether Plaintiffs meet or exceed the social distancing and hygiene guidelines pursuant to which the Commonwealth disparately and discriminatorily allows so-called ‘life-sustaining’ commercial and non-religious entities (e.g., beer, wine, and liquor stores, warehouse clubs, and supercenters) to accommodate large gatherings of persons without scrutiny or numerical limit.”
On April 18, U.S. District Judge David Hale, nominated to the bench by then-President Barack Obama, ruled against Maryville Baptist Church, opining that Beshear’s order prohibiting in-person “mass gatherings” does not discriminate against churches as it bans all mass gatherings.
He also noted that churches have alternatives: drive-in, online, or telephone meetings, or watching online or listening on the radio.
“[U]npersuasive is Plaintiffs’ contention that the orders violate their right to freely exercise their religion by discriminating against religious conduct. Again, the order temporarily prohibits ‘[a]ll mass gatherings,’ not merely religious gatherings,” Hale wrote. “Religious expression is not singled out. And further, contrary to Plaintiffs’ assertions, there are no identified exceptions to the prohibition on mass gatherings.”
He additionally rejected the argument that it is unfair to allow supercenters or liquor stores to remain open while churches may not meet in person, finding that shopping is rather a “transitory experience” while church is more akin to a communal gathering at a concert or restaurant.
“Plaintiffs seek to compare in-person attendance at church services with presence at a liquor store or ‘supercenter store[].’ The latter, however, is a singular and transitory experience:individuals enter the store at various times to purchase various items; they move around the store individually subject to strict social-distancing guidelines set out by state and federal health authorities — and they leave when they have achieved their purpose,” Hale wrote.
“Plaintiffs’ desired church service, in contrast, is by design a communal experience, one for which a a large group of individuals come together at the same time in the same place for the same purpose.”
The church appealed, and Attorney General Cameron argued in his amicus brief in support of Marysville Baptist Church on Wednesday that Hale got it wrong.
“Simply put, permitting worshipers to attend a service where everyone typically remains in the same spot throughout (all the while social distancing) will logically place fewer Kentuckians within six feet of one another than shopping at a grocery store, hardware store, or other retail business where they will continuously pass one another, stand in line together, or bump into one another as they turn a corner,” he contended.
“And that is not to mention that in such retail establishments shoppers will pick up and put back goods, push the same shopping carts, and touch the same credit card machines.”
Cameron opined that churches are indeed being treated unfairly since secular activities are allowed, which makes the governor’s orders “quintessential discrimination against religion [and] requiring the state to meet the high burden of strict scrutiny.”
“Even though these same orders broadly permit individuals to crowd into hardware stores and law offices, or newsrooms, liquor stores and grocery stores, they do not permit people to attend religious services at a church, mosque, synagogue, or other house of worship, even if they follow social-distancing guidelines. This is, without question, an unconstitutional targeting of religious activity,” he wrote.
“Governor Beshear has publicly declared that attending worship service is not life-sustaining, while allowing liquor stores and retailers to continue operating. It is mind-boggling discrimination,” Cameron lamented. “Or as the court noted in a similar case, ‘if beer is ‘essential,’ so is Easter.”
He said that while none doubt that the government has an interest in preventing the spread of COVID-19, “Governor Beshear has offered no explanation as to why it is necessary to prohibit religious activities that pose exactly the same risk as similar, non-religious activities.”
Cameron also held a press conference about the issue on Wednesday (view it below), and warned in a press release, “Governor Beshear should immediately rescind the executive orders targeting faith-based gatherings, and, if he doesn’t, then we will be forced to file a lawsuit and allow a judge to determine whether his order, as it pertains to religious groups, is constitutional.”
Beshear defended his actions, stating, according to WYMT, “Folks, I’m not trying to set rules that are difficult, and I’m not trying to set rules that are controversial. I’m just trying to set rules that save lives.”

Students of Bible prophecy are not surprised by events that have been triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Lord Jesus Christ gave us signs that would precede His second coming. One of the many signs that we are seeing today is “pestilence” (Luke 21:11). Pestilence is defined as a “contagion or infectious epidemic that is virulent and devastating.” The Lord Jesus said the signs will arrive like “birth pains”, meaning they will increase in frequency and intensity prior to His return. It is true that we have seen devastating plagues and pestilences throughout history, but none of them have had the far-reaching global impact of Covid-19. Could it be that our sovereign Lord is giving a merciful warning of a more devastating pestilence that awaits those who do not seek Him as their Savior and refuge? During the tribulation, one fourth of the world’s population will perish by pestilence, plagues and the sword (Rev. 6:8). More plagues will follow that will kill one third of the remaining population (Rev. 9:18).

Another one of the prophetic signs is that of a global government that will be ruled by a dictator who will have “authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation” (Rev. 13:7). He will cause everyone to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and no one will be able to buy or to sell without the mark (Rev. 13:16-17). This world-wide pandemic has been a catalyst for globalists to centralize and digitize data on a growing segment of the world’s population. The ultimate goal of the globalist agenda is widespread surveillance and control over people’s lives, including our jobs, our religious activities, our medical care, our travel, and our buying and selling. Historically, we have seen that every serious crisis has brought about new opportunities for government control. This coronavirus crisis will eventually pass, but the government will never forget how easy it was to take control of our lives.

The World Health Organization is proposing a cashless society because cash may be spreading the coronavirus. To prevent the spread of the disease, they claim we need to use the latest technology to buy and sell. Health experts are turning to technology to take over the contact tracing of the virus. An invisible quantum dot tattoo implant that will track who has been tested for and vaccinated against Covid-19 is now in the works. Countries like Singapore and China are using cellphone-based tools to identify and monitor people who might have been exposed to someone with Covid-19. Google and Apple have partnered to build a Bluetooth-based tracking system that can automatically log people’s interactions. The push for a global government, coupled with the necessary tools for surveillance technology, will one day enable the Antichrist to introduce his mark that will control a global economy.

Over 180 countries throughout the world have been dealing with the devastating effects of this pandemic. Government enforced lockdowns and stay-at-home orders have produced angry protests, rising unemployment, and economic collapse. The rising death count along with all the fear-mongering and misinformation produced by the liberal media is fanning the flames of hysteria and causing growing confusion and hopelessness. Bill Gates, who is a vocal proponent for population control, has pushed for massive worldwide vaccinations. He recently stated, “Mass public gatherings will not come back ‘at all’ until we have everyone on the planet covered by vaccines.” 

The whole world may be primed for an intellectual genius to rise up with all the solutions for a new world order of peace and prosperity. The apostle Paul described him as the man of lawlessness, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship (2 Thes. 2:3-4). He will come in accordance with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders (2 Thes. 2:9). Of course, we do not know when he will appear, because his appearance will be according to our Sovereign Lord’s prophetic time clock. When the “beast” does appear, the whole earth will marvel as they follow him (Rev. 13:3). 

We have seen how God disciplines His people who go astray and how He judges godless nations with pestilence and famine. The wisest response to God’s judgment has always been repentance, faith and obedience to the one true God and Savior. Christians, who have been called out of darkness into the glorious light of our Savior, are not to be troubled or afraid. Our Lord is with us no matter how hopeless the situation or circumstances appear to be. He sovereignly controls everything in His creation, including Covid-19. We do not know what the future holds, but we do know Who holds the future. “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” (Heb. 10:23)
Our Lady of the Coronavirus

Pope Francis offered a prayer to the Virgin Mary, entrusting the whole world to her protection in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Following is part of his prayer, “O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Salvation of the Roman People, you know what we need. We are certain that you will provide. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, we seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas, deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.”  Read more.
In light of the pandemic, a Vatican professor said everything that happens is “for the triumph of the Church” and that “the closer the punishment is, the closer will be the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary that Our Lady has promised us.” The solution to all this suffering is Our Lady of Fatima. The formula for success is Our Lady of Fatima and to do the following: daily mass where possible, three Hail Mary’s, rosary, confession to a priest, consecration of ourselves to Our Lady, wearing the scapular, and the intercession of the saints and guardian angels. Read more.

Mike’s Comment:  Where is God in the Vatican’s messages? In the divinely inspired Scriptures we read, “He (God) alone is my protector and deliverer. He is my refuge; I will not be upended” (Psalm 62:6). I write this not to be offensive, but to warn Catholics that they need to repent and turn to Christ and His Word, not to Mary or the pope. Knowing that this kind of deception would be widespread, Paul warned: “I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ” (2 Cor. 11:3).

Muslim Governor Urges People to Turn to Mary  

In the middle of the emergency caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic, a Muslim Saudi governor has called on people to turn to Mary to find strength, courage and a path to overcome the Covid-19 outbreak. He said, If we look at the Virgin Mary and her son, Jesus, in the Qurʼān, “we’ll find one particular story that tells of perseverance” in the quest for “a road map” to “combat struggles and pandemics.”

The Governor noted, “The story of Mariam (Mary), tells the story of every true victor. The moral of her story is clear; it’s through these directives [from God] that success against all struggles and pandemics can be achieved.” He said, only “through Mariam the Virgin, will we find the lessons of survival.” Currently, Saudi Arabia has the highest number of confirmed Covid-19 cases among Arab Gulf nations. Read more.

Mike’s Comment: Most people know the importance of Mary to Catholics and how they believe she is the cause of their salvation and how the deliverer of their souls from death. But not many know of her prominence among Muslims. She is the most revered woman of the Muslim faith. Her name is mentioned more often (34 times) in the Quran than in the Bible. Muslims are now seeking messages from Apparitions of Mary at Fatima. We can only wonder if these apparitions are some of the lying signs and wonders Satan will use to unite Catholicism with Islam and build his one-world religion. The messages declare that “Mary” is coming for all her children, including Muslims, Catholics and Protestants, and that people of all religions can be saved apart from Jesus as long as they are good. 


Tenn. Co. Restricts Communion, Bibles & Singing at Churches

“Singing is discouraged as it is thought to be an activity that expels significantly more virus than talking,” says guidelines

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
Officials in Knox County, Tennessee, are telling local churches to stop conducting communion, to remove Bibles from the pews and to even discourage singing during service.
The county released a “phased reopening” plan which, ironically enough, references several New York City guidelines for its models on how churches should conduct worship even though Knox Co. has no where near as many cases as NYC, nor does it even have the most cases in Tennessee, according to a case map by
According to Knox Co.’s own data, the county has had 232 positive cases of Covid-19, with 199 reported recoveries as of the time of this writing.
Now, according to the reopening plan:
– The physical taking of communion/sacrament should not be performed due to the serial breaking of physical distancing across a congregation. Consider guiding parishioners in how to connect with the spiritual aspects of these practices during this phase.
– Singing is discouraged as it is thought to be an activity that expels significantly more virus than talking.
– Deep cleaning should occur between services. Remove all communal items (for example, tithe plates, hymnals, bibles, etc.). If applicable, use a donation box instead of tithe plate.
We’ve reached out to the county to see why New York City guidelines were used instead of guidelines by the State of Tennessee.
The county could potentially put itself at risk for litigation given that government officials are basically telling churches how to conduct worship, especially with the claim about singing.
At some point it might be more prudent for churches to remain closed instead of allowing the government influence over their theology.
This story does bring to mind an incident in China in which Christian churches were forced to replace the Ten Commandments with quotes from Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“Some congregations have been threatened to be blacklisted by the government, meaning that their travels will be restricted and schooling and future employment of their offspring will be impeded if they refused to overhaul their churches according to the current national policies,” according to a journalist who covered the story. “Disobeying the orders means opposition to the Communist Party, officials claimed.”
Now while that incident didn’t take place amid a pandemic, it does underscore the dangers of allowing government inside the church, regardless of the reason.

Beware the Contact Tracers

The Public Health mafia (including the Clintons) are speaking in military language about an "army" of "front line" "agents" to question the associations & whereabouts of anyone who tested positive for the stupid v-i-r-u-s. I have lots to say.

An outraged California mother announced on Facebook that she would be pulling her children from public school after receiving an email advertising an online “LGBTQ+ Safe Space Web Hangout” for “LGBTQ+youth ages 13-25.”
According to the advertisement, which was e-mailed to middle-school children by government schools in California's Gilroy and Morgan Hill school district, this “Safe Space Web Hangout” is “private” and by “invite only.” They happen every Wednesday at 4 PM, the email said.
The hangouts are hosted by “The LGBT Youth Space,” a self-styled “community drop-in center” funded by taxpayers for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and ally youth and young adults ages 13-25.” Yes — ages 13 through 25.
Participation in “Safe Space Web Hangout” is via smartphone or phone, with video being optional, the e-mail said.
Parents were shocked. “I cannot believe I just received this email from my child’s middle school,” explained the Hispanic mother, whose name is not being reported even though the comments were made in a public forum because FreedomProject Media could not obtain her consent by press time. “There is so much wrong with this.”
However, rather than just complain online, as so many parents do, this mother decided to take serious action to protect her children. “This is why along with many other reasons they will not be going to go there next year,” she explained, receiving over 500 likes, shares, and comments on the group in less than two days.
Under the post, critics expressed even more intense outrage. One mother, for instance, said the “safe space” was actually a “safe space” for “pedophiles” to “hit on children.” Another outraged mom had similar thoughts: “A government-allowed way to molest and indoctrinate children in a legal way. It makes me SICK!!!”
More than a few commentators suggested the “Safe Space” could be used by pedophiles and child rapists to groom and procure minor children. “They’re not even trying to hide the grooming anymore,” said one Facebook user under the post. Another said: “Pedo sponsored, no doubt.” Dozens of comments expressed similar sentiments.
Stephanie Yates, founder of Informed Parents of California, told The Newman Report that more and more school districts were partnering with LGBTQ groups seeking to solicit children. Still, Yates is thankful for her network's platform, which allows parents to share their personal stories — as the mother above did — and wake up other parents.
“We need more parents to have the boldness and courage to share their experience and the documentation they receive from schools,” Yates said, adding that parents were increasingly being sidelined in communications from education officials. “Schools are sending direct communications to the children through their school emails.”
“Imagine what all the schools are soliciting our children with,” she said. “What is even more frightening is that kids could be going on to these hangouts without parents knowing and by the time parents find out, if they ever do, it will be very hard for a parent to talk with their children about the harms of these groups.”
Among other concerns, comparing it to parents trying to protect their daughter from a bad boyfriend, Yates said these organizations allied with schools are targeting impressionable children and alienating them from their parents. “They lure them in by saying that they care about them, they build an emotional bond and tell them that their parents don't understand or can't be trusted,” she added. “This is pretty much a grooming.”
“Parents need to take a stand, and pull their kids before it happens to their children,” concluded Yates, whose grassroots movement has taken the state by storm.
A bit of digging into the LGBT group reveals some troubling facts. Among other supposed “services,” this tax-funded outfit offering the “Safe Space” for 13- to 25-year old “youth” provides condoms, “safe sex supplies,” “activism and leadership opportunities,” “gender and sexuality workshops” for students, and more, according to its website.
They also provide a “space” where older homosexual men can connect with children as young as 13, it seems.
“The LGBTQ Youth Space is staffed by team of LGBTQ+ and ally community members,” the website continues. “We have diverse backgrounds in fields of social justice, youth development, mental health, social work, sexuality and gender studies, community organizing, public heath, and arts and culture.”
Funded by Substance Use Prevention Services of the Behavioral Health Department in Santa Clara County, California, the scheme is aimed homosexual, bisexual, transgender, “queer,” and other children and adults.
Nobody answered at the listed phone number when contacted by The Newman Report, and the message machine was apparently not set up.
As The Newman Report highlighted in February, Callgbtqifornia lawmakers backed by “Equality California” are working to remove the requirement that homosexual and transgender adults who rape underage children be added to the state's sex-offender registry.
Similarly, educators in the state have been exposed here and in other sources on multiple occasions working to normalize child rape and pedophilia. One school district official was even caught on tape defending the teaching of child rape to children as part of LGBT “history” lessons, claiming it was a “sexual orientation” that “has existed in history.”
Congratulations to this brave mother for speaking out, and even more importantly, for taking bold action to protect her middle-school child from the escalating abuse being perpetrated by government schools. This sort of grotesque extremism will continue to get worse unless and until more parents do the same.
